Anything I should do while the tranny is out of the car before I have it installed with a 3800 stall TC with mark flexplate? I will be havin the harness rewiren as soon as the harness is out.. I know there jmod isnt needed just to drill the seperator plate? Removing the 1-2 spring would be ok?? Thanks!

I would either get a spiral lock kit or have the snap ring that holds the mechanical diode on welded.
Removing the 1-2 bottom spring and installing a brown top spring is something you should definitely do with that converter.

Contact Alan and have the diode done right. He welds them up quite nice. Add a cooler, and a Magnefine filter. Umm, what else, new pump gaskets if you haven't already bought them (if you send the drum/diode to dirtyd0g for welding, you will need to pull the pump). Other than that, can't think of much.

If you are going to get that involved just bring the car here :)
I have a flusher to properly flush the radiator (rotunda) I don't like the in line filters, but if you don't have a good flusher use one for the first couple thousand miles and then remove it. They just become another maintenance item, the transmission has a good filter on it. I can do a 3/8 cooler line setup for next to nothing :)

so can you tow my car to cincinnati for free? Im thinking it will cost about 400 bucks just to tow :( Ive never heard replacing a "brown" spring. I did hear about diode welded. Any picture of the diode all welded up? My dad is a professional welder and could just have him do it. How hard is it to remove the pump? I really need a new pump gasket with only 5k on the tranny?

If your seriouse about bringing it down to you what would you charge to setup my tranny and install? I'll see what ill be charged for a flatbed run. The tranny in it now has no forward gears or reverse soo it doesnt move on its own power at all. I will have the flexplate ordered next week along with my trans harness. So everything will be here minus "brown" spring. What you think? Thanks!
